If you mean me, nope, that's not what I'm thinking but again, I spoke too quickly. I don't much care about power usage or at least, that's not my motivating factor. It's the flexibility of having the A/V over the network vs coax that I'm interested in.

As in set top boxes. A box that is a stand alone device, which sits on or near each TV, has a compliment of outputs ranging from composite to perhaps component to DVI. This could even be a PC since there are many embedded devices which look like STB's and are in fact small pc's running linux for the most part.
